Re: Orange Peel Rolling Brightside...

In hindsight, I was originally painting in conditions that were simply too warm for the paint viscosity I was using.

I am in Florida at the moment, and am learning the local requirements. I have since painted as early as possible in the morning. Overcast days are my friend. And I have thinned the paint 10-20%.

It pays to have a game plan, painting by sections so that you are working in small areas where you can keep a wet edge and/or tip off the section before the paint starts to flash off. It's easier to keep wet edge on varnish than on this paint, particularly when done outdoors.

Now that I have done several sections, using a couple different techniques, I have gotten to the point where any defects - brush marks or stipple/orange peel - are only visible at about twelve inches from the surface, and only in certain light and angles. Good enough for my requirements.

That said, I have decided I don't like the final paint color and am going to do an additional coat a slightly brighter white, and add a tiny bit of flattening agent.

Good thing I am not in a hurry

As to the paint lifting in spots for geoleo, is water somehow getting under the paint?
